Default Re: 2004 Saturn Ion Roof Rack

Personally, I went shopping for a roof rack and was disappointed at the outrageous prices from Thule and other brands. Needless to say, I didn't buy into the "Look at me!? I spent a gazillion dollars so I can transport one(1) snowboard!" I found a genuine Saturn luggage rack online from a GM (Md) dealer and bought it. They didn't tell me it was missing the four clips needed to attach the luggage rack to the roof but did find a Florida dealer with them. Once assembled, I retrofitted old ski racks to them to carry six pairs of skis or combination of skis and snowboards. Apparently, the S-series and L-series gutterless roofs share the same luggage racks. http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...L300+roof+rack, post #16. I think I paid $150(?). Well worth the investment compared to overpriced racks for snobs.

If the Ions are the same roof construction and uses the same luggage racks, you may be able to find them, either new or used if it meets your needs. Of course, you might have to be creative of any mods are needed. "If there's a will there's a way."

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
